Shri Suresh Prabhu
Hon’ble Minister for Commerce and Industry
New Delhi – 110 107
Sub: - Stop Proposed move to close down/restructure salt Commissioner’s organistion – reg.
It is reported that Ministry of Commerce and Industry has initiated action to close down various offices/restructure office’s under Salt Department based on the recommendations of Expenditure Reforms Committee and National Productivity Council (NPC). The Kolkata region has been ordered to be closed with immediate effect and the Staff attached to Kolkata office are shifted to Humma Circle office in Odisha State which is 575 Kilometers away from Kolkata.
In view of the Govt. decision to close the organisation, the Department is not allowed to fill up post including promotional posts. Promotion to various cadres for the past three years is held up and the staff are very much frustrated. Uncertainty is looming large over their head, almost all of them above 50 years of age. They have settled in their respective place of posting and facing their crucial family commitments such as education and marriage of their children etc. with great difficulties. The decision to close down the organisation has very much affected their morale and all are worried about their future.
In view of the above, I request your immediate intervention so that the decision to close down/re-organise the salt Department will be reviewed and dropped. It is further requested that the issues relating to the staff may be discussed with the staff side before taking any decision affecting the staff.
Awaiting favourable action.

Sub: - Stop Proposed move to close the Directorate of Census Operations (DCOs) functioning in states and transfer the surplus staff to state Government.
The Directorate of Census Operations (DCOs), functioning in all the states and Union territories of India are entrusted with the task of conducting Sample Registration System Survey (SRS) which is conducted twice a year and hence known as the Half yearly survey. The Half yearly Surveys have been conducted by various DCOs from 1969 and this includes collection of various socio-economic indicators of the country like birth, death, infant mortality, maternal mortality and verbal autopsy for causes of death. This data is extensively used by the Government of India for planning and execution of various socio-economic welfare schemes for different section of society. We would like to bring to your kind notice that the half yearly survey is the source of exhaustive, reliable and authentic data base of socio-economic indicators compiled together by the hard labour of employees of statistical cadre.
It has come to our understanding that the second phase of Half Yearly Survey which would have ordinarily started in the month of January 2018 is deferred indefinitely till a further communication in this regard is received from the office of the Registrar General of India (RGI). It is also understood that, the RGI is meeting Secretary, Planning, Govt. of Kerala to explore the possibilities regarding transferring the work of SRS to Economics and statistics Division of Kerala state. Subsequent on successful completion of the above by Government of Kerala, the SRS survey will be transferred to respective state Governments through-out the country. It is apparent that such a transfer of work to state Government department will take away an important function of the Census Directorate. In such an eventuality thousands of statistical Cadre employees working in the SRS section in all DCOs in states and Union territories will be rendered surplus. It is understood that the office of the Registrar General of India is planning to relocate and retrench surplus staff working in such DCOs. All these measures have aroused suspicion and uncertainty in the minds of the employees and there is a general sense of apprehension regarding job security of employees.
In the above circumstances, I request the Hon’ble Minister to intervene immediately and stop the ill-advised move of the Census authorities which is detrimental to the interest of the prestigious Census Department and also to thousands of employees working in the department for years together.
Awaiting favourable action,
